DHL has announced the launch of Airport to Door Express, an offering which combines the ease-of-use and speed advantage of DHLwith the transportation requirements of importers under traditional shipping terms.

Airport to Door Express is a specially designed, userfriendly service that meets the needs of customers who import from their overseas suppliers usually using Free Carrier (FCA) Incoterms (International Commercial Terms) that do not require door-to-door transport. With the Airport to Door Express service, DHL aims to tap into an industry segment that is estimated to account for 50 percent of the total cross-border airfreight market in Asia Pacific.

Airport to Door Express is launched in 13 markets in Asia Pacifi c covering Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. It is anticipated that the product will be expanded to the rest of Asia Pacifi c and to other regions at a later stage.

Separately, the express fi rm launched a new “A.M.ERICA Campaign” to promote the advantages of using DHL for deliveries between Japan and America.

In response to sharply increasing demand for air cargo transport between America and Asia, DHL has invested more than US$1.2 billion since 2004 to reinforce its American infrastructure, opening new air and ground hubs and expanding existing facilities.
